In our first issue of 2015 we island hop from a French rock in the Atlantic to the crumbling colonial manses of French Polynesia. We also visit the rarely surfed Pacific coast of a remote Indonesian atoll, the pine forests of Vancouver Island, and then return to more continental-based matters in North Africa, Australia, and the Golden State. The subject matter is as diverse as the geography. Assorted features cover the hydrodynamic properties of marine plywood, a coastal art movement that took root in 1930s, the projected light instillations of L.A.-based artist Peter Schroff, and the aerial permutations of free surfer Dion Agius.
